What Is the Double Agent Game Mode in Black Ops Cold War?

Double Agent is an investigative new Multiplayer party experience inside Black Ops Cold War Season 5.

Similar to popular online games such as Trouble in Terrorist Town (TTT) or Among Us, this game mode will require communication and a keen eye to expose the traitors.

The game begins with 10 players in a lobby, each assigned one of 3 roles:

  • Double Agents – These players must eliminate everyone else or successfully set off explosive charges around the map.
  • The Investigator – A player who must use clues to target suspected Double Agents as Wanted criminals.
  • Operatives – Good players who must work together to identify and eliminate Double Agents quickly.

Although all players will start the game with a pistol, other weapons can be found around the map during the game’s preparing stage.

Speaking of weapons, make sure you know how to unlock the Tec-9 and the EM2 in Warzone and Black Ops Cold War.

Make no mistake, Black Ops Cold War’s new Double Agent mode is no simple shootout, however.

Double Agents will have to be sneaky to accomplish their goals, lest they be eliminated by the overwhelming forces of good. Thankfully, each role has access to unique skills and content to make their job easier.

As an example, Double Agents can use Gas Mines, Counter Spy Planes, Combat Bows, and Attack Helicopters to accomplish their mission. They also have protection from radiation that spreads from the bombs they’ve set.

Investigators will also receive a helping hand, with Trophy Systems, Stimshots, and Handcannons available. What’s more, the detective role can also see the footprints of an attacker when examining a player’s death location.

When you’re suspicious of another Operative, the Investigation can issue a Wanted Order on a player to bring them to justice.

Double Agent is a Black Ops Cold War game mode that really needs Voice Chat enabled to be great. On top of that, while it’s playable online, it’s even more fun with 9 of your closest friends instead.

Meanwhile, we’ve got a huge amount of new maps coming to Black Ops Cold War Multiplayer. But Warzone fans are feeling a little left out.

After all, it appears that we won’t be getting the FOV slider in Warzone this season after all, despite new leaks. What’s more, a lot of Warzone players are quitting the game completely, due to cheaters.

Even Warzone pros are leaving the game for Apex Legends, a move that’s sure to concern Activision.
